Interoperability - Universal and Open
Making MyData as interoperable as the web itself
Our digital world is full of intentionally built walls and impenetrable wastelands of unintentional incompatibilities. We envision a future, where people have self-sovereign (not controlled by anybody else) digital identities and freedom to use their data without any constraints.
What are the minimum interoperability requirements of making different personal data solutions work together in an ecosystem? We look into challenges that the builders of these solutions are facing and solving today. We hope to gain awareness of the relevant open standards and possible solutions to the big interoperability questions, like semantics of data, impact of regulations and governance of global networks.
